Internationally-renowned artist, illustrator, and educator, Barbara Nessim has been a vital contributor and influential trendsetter in the art world over the past several decades. Women who built careers as illustrators in the “Mad Men” era NY were few and far between. The work that she produced was a wonderful evocation of the New York art, fashion, and music scene. The exhibit includes sketchbooks, prints, drawings, computer graphics, artist’s books and other publications, many featured in magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire. Ms. Nessim was also one of the first illustrators to work with computers.
